the words, given on the blackboard.
Means of communication средство общения
Greek- греческий
Television, also called TV, is one of our most important means of
communication. It brings moving pictures and sounds from around the
world into millions of homes. The name «Television» comes from Greek
word meaning «far», and a Latin word meaning «to see», so the word
«tele vision» means «to see far».
3) Чтение
Teacher: So, we’ve learnt some interesting information about television
and its history. Now, let’s read the text in turn about television, do some
tasks and try to answer the main question “What are the advantages and
disadvantages of watching TV”
Television: arguments for and against watching TV.
Television plays a very important part in people's lives. It’s a wonderful source of
information and one of the best ways to spend free time. TV channels show a lot of
different programmers: documentaries, news programmers, comedies, soap operas,
concerts and talk shows. Television has a lot of advantages. It gives us the
opportunity to travel all over the world, to see different people and to learn about
their customs and traditions. TV is the cheapest form of entertainment, which gives
pleasure to millions of people, especially to old people who live alone. But many
people say that television has a lot of disadvantages and that watching TV is a
terrible waste of time. There are really a lot of bad programmes on TV and of
course, there are TV addicts who just sit down in front of the "box" and watch TV
for hours without choosing programmes. In this case, watching television is for
such people really waste of time. Television really makes some people lazier.
They stay at home, they read less, think less, even talk less. TV cuts them off from
reality and real life is better than this passive enjoyment. The other disadvantage is
that there is too much violence on TV and many people think that watching such
programmes can turn people into criminals. But if we watch TV for an hour a day
to know what is happening in the world or to relax, or to watch some interesting
programme, then television is really useful. Many of programmes shown on TV
can help us a lot. A good soap-opera, or a comedy or even an advertisement may
be a source of relaxation and even some new knowledge for many people. So I
think that television has a lot of advantages .I think, that TV itself doesn't have bad
effects , but people should learn how to use it properly. The ideal thing is to turn on
the TV only when there is a really interesting programme, and to turn it off, if the
programme is stupid or boring and uninteresting.
Teacher: Well-done, my friends. Let’s find the English equivalents to the following
Russian phrases
- Источник информации

Teacher: You’ve worked very well. Now it’s time to answer the main
question “What are the advantages and disadvantages of watching TV”?
Express your opinion, please.
P1: I think, television is a great invention. It has more arguments for than
against. Television is a source of information, the best way to spend our
free time. We can learn the information about many things quickly. We
can sit at home, watch the “box” and know everything.
P2: Yes, I agree. Television is the cheapest form of entertainment. We
can travel from one country to another in an armchair. It’s good for
disabled and old people who live alone.
P3: I disagree with P1 and P2, because people become lazier, because of
it. They waste their time. They come from work and do nothing only
watch TV. They do not read.
P4: I think that television is out of date nowadays, because of the
Internet. Many people prefer the Internet to television. It’s not good too.
